Hartman's reflection on why he participated in jaundice experiments at CPS #140:


“We were called yellow bellies and things like that. I wanted to prove that I wasn’t afraid to take risks if it did good.  I would not take risks to kill people, but if it would save people. . . .  Actually I was happy that I had the opportunity to show the world I was willing to take risks”
